Found this over at Hwerks.com, seems interesting (and fairly recent too):



WEST HAVEN, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 12, 2009 - NanoViricides, Inc. (OTC BB: NNVC.OB) (the "Company"), reported today that the CBS affiliate TV station WBRZ interviewed Professor K. Gus Kousoulas , PhD, in which he explained the potential implications of the Company's nanoviricides™ anti-Herpes drug candidates.

“Over 90% of the people are infected with Herpes, whether they know it or not,” said Dr. Kousoulas, adding “it can manifest as cold sores or genital herpes. [These manifestations] can be very painful, especially for women.” He also commented that “Unlike true love, herpes is forever,” referring to the fact that the herpes virus goes dormant in the body between recurrent manifestations, and that there is at present no cure for herpes.

“A nanoviricide drug could be an important breakthrough,” he said, explaining, “the duration of a cold sore could be reduced drastically, from a month to just a few days [by applying a nanoviricide skin cream],” based on studies conducted in the laboratories at the Louisiana State University's (LSU) Division of Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine (BIOMMED). In cell culture testing, his laboratory found that certain nanoviricides eliminated 99.99% of the virus from infected cells.

Seems a bit too optimistic for my tastes, but then the video article went on to explain how they might try to figure out a way to reduce or even eliminate transmission rates with nanoviricides within the next year, and they've already received new grants in research money for testing. So we'll see how it plays out, here's hoping.

NanoViricides, Inc. (OTC BB: NNVC.OB) (the "Company"), announced that it is developing FluCide(™), its flagship anti-influenza drug candidate, to work against all influenza types and subtypes. FluCide has been shown to be effective against both common influenza subtype H1N1, as well as two different variants of bird flu subtype H5N1.

The Company has previously announced excellent results in both animal studies and cell culture studies against widely different influenza subtypes and strains. If these results are confirmed in further animal and human studies, then FluCide would likely be considered the best ever drug effective against all influenzas. The Company is communicating its capabilities to various agencies involved in the current epidemic response.

this is potentially only (possibly better) treatment, not a cure.

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.

      Do you have an APOE4 gene? I do. I also have HSV-2, which so far hasn't been linked to dementia. Itzhaki previously found that cold sores occur more frequently in those who carry a gene variant that confers increased risk of Alzheimer’s called APOE-ε4. "Our theory is that in APOE-ε4 carriers, reactivation is more frequent or more harmful in HSV1-infected brain cells, which as a result accumulate damage that culminates in development of Alzheimer's," she said.

      So basically, if you carry the APOE4 gene and have oral HSV-1, you chances of dementia could be quite high. But if you have APOE4, your chances of dementia were higher already. Look, 80% of the population has HSV-1. 80% of the population does not get dementia. You also seem to skip over the fact that antiviral treatment can reduce the increased chances of dementia to almost nothing. "The striking results include evidence that the risk of senile dementia is much greater in those who are infected with HSV, and that anti-herpes antiviral treatment causes a dramatic decrease in number of those subjects severely affected by HSV1 who later develop dementia," Itzhaki said. The data from Taiwan only applies to the rare severe HSV1 or VZV infections. The next step will be to study dementia rates amongst people with mild HSV1 infections, including herpes labialis or mild genital herpes. "Considering that over 150 publications strongly support an HSV1 role in Alzheimer's, these Taiwan findings greatly justify usage of antiherpes antivirals - which are safe and well-tolerated - to treat Alzheimer's disease,” Itzhaki said."They also incentivize development of an HSV1 vaccine, which would likely be the most effective treatment." I think it behooves you to do your research and actually read the articles you are posting before pulling the alarm and trying to scare people.
